The Anthea's Garden Project
Anthea’s Garden brings together composer, author, illustrator, percussionists, graphic designer and arts/music educators to create a beautiful illustrated children’s audio music and picture book.
Anthea’s Garden is about a little girl who has a series of dreamlike, magical adventures. She has shrunk to the size of a mouse and explores her garden where she finds: a runaway pot plant; her giant cat; fairies dancing; and a parade of insects. Set in a suburban backyard in Melbourne, the story encapsulates the magic of childhood through the power of the imagination and children’s instinctive fascination with nature. The work is a requiem for fellow creative artist Anthea McKie (1980 – 2003) and so the themes explored in the musical content and story are inspired by memories of Anthea and the things that she loved.
